Established in 2009, Mentors International helps individuals and families throughout Honduras turn generational poverty into sustainable self-reliance. The Honduras economy is heavily dependent on U.S. trade, which historically took the form of exporting bananas and coffee.
This country has one of the highest populations of people living in extreme poverty in Central America.
In Honduras, 57% of the population struggles to survive on less than $5.50 a day. The people of Honduras suffer from high unemployment and vastly unequal distribution of wealth.
Fortunately, through mentorship, training, and financial solutions, individuals and families are improving their incomes, paying off their debts, and increasing their savings. They are starting businesses, finding employment, and spreading prosperity throughout their local communities.
